Sexy thrills and treats, oh my! ABSINTHE’s dazzling Green Fairy, Melody Sweets, will transform the ABSINTHE Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace from vaudeville spectacular to a sideshow by the sea in her latest burlesque production “Coney Island! Burlesque at the Beach!” on Friday, Aug. 28.
For one-night-only, guests will be treated to a Coney Island-inspired night of delight featuring a performance by Sweets and several special guests. Doors open at midnight and attendees must be 18+. Tickets are on sale now at MelodySweets.com.
Following the success of her most recent production, “Big Top Circus and Burlesque,” Sweets invites revelers to dive into a night filled with sizzling performances, special surprises and perhaps even a little sand! Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a traditional hot dog-eating contest for a chance to win one pair of tickets to see ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace, as well as enjoy carnival-themed games and pre-show attractions provided by Skin City and more in front of the Spiegeltent.

- ABSINTHE’s bubble ballerina, Charlie Starling
- ABSINTHE straps aerialist, Alexa Hukari
- ABSINTHE’s Will Howard as “Strongman”
- Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Albert Cadabra as “Human Block Head”

- Maria Sarah-Popazova as “Madame Maria Bendarina”
- Burlesque performer, Nasty Canasta as “Hoochie Kooch”

“Coney Island! Burlesque at the Beach!” will feature live music by an all-star band, including Eric Plante of O by Cirque Du Soleil, Steven Lee of Donny and Marie, Mike Benigno of MJ Live! and others.
A limited number of pre-sale tickets are available for purchase for $20 at MelodySweets.com. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $30. All proceeds from the event will benefit Coney Island’s Sideshow by the Seashore and the Southern Nevada Water Authority.
